Performer: NICK ROSSI is the San Francisco-Bay Area’s premiere swing bandleader. His variety of combos are popular both among swing dancers and jazz fans, appearing at a most of the region’s top venues. His music, presentation, and spirit is influenced and inspired by the Swing Era of the 1930s and 1940s, but is very much in a present tense. Nick leads the house band monthly at the historic and spectacular Top of the Mark in San Francisco, which like the Golden Gate International Exposition debuted in 1939.

Dress: Festive! Vintage Dress admired but not required

Food and Drink: Exposition themed cocktails will be poured by Gold Bar Whiskey  and Pacific House Gin. Wine and beer will be provided by Woods Island Club. Food truck will be available on site.
